Does Dark Matter BREAK Physics? | Space Time | PBS Digital Studios

[MUSIC PLAYING] Dark matter literally binds the galaxy together. But there’s a problem. Nobody knows what dark matter is. My name is Matt and this is “SpaceTime.” Physics has a problem. The Milky Way galaxy is spinning so fast that it should be scattering its stars into the void. Based on the amount of binding […]

The DARKSABER Explained (Star Wars SCIENCE)

– This episode of Because Science is sponsored by Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. At this point, I guess a significant percentage of earth’s population knows what this is. But what about this? What is a dark saber? And how does it work? Let’s get technical. (electronic whirring) (upbeat techno music) The dark saber first […]

Super Mario Galaxy’s DEADLY Physics! | The SCIENCE! …of Super Mario Galaxy

Dear Nintendo, I’m doped up on hydrocodone From getting my wisdom teeth yanked out a few days ago. And I’m spewing blood all over my microphone just recording this, so let’s cut the bullsh*t Rat-ta-tat & bitter batter And get this episode started. I bought my WiiU to play new games, so I can do […]

The Existence of White Holes May Settle One of Physics’ Biggest Debates

The Existence of White Holes May Settle One of Physics’ Biggest Debates

Longtime viewers of this channel know that we talk about black holes a lot. We just can’t seem to get enough of them. We give them so much attention but today we’re going to talk about their bizarro twins, white holes. Basically, a white hole is the hypothetical opposite of a black hole. Now I’d […]

Why do some scientists believe that our universe is a hologram?

Today I want to tell you why some scientists believe that our universe is really a 3-dimensional projection of a 2-dimensional space. They call it the “holographic principle” and the key idea is this. Usually, the number of different things you can imagine happening inside a part of space increases with the volume. Think of […]

Anti-Matter Lightsabers are a Bad Idea | Because Science Footnotes

– Have you ever seen a rock that isn’t a rock? I mean, like, have you ever seen a rock, that is something resembling a stone, but wasn’t formed by natural processes? I have, it’s something very interesting produced by humans, through our factory processes, and it is this. It is called fordite. Why is […]

Black Holes and the Fundamental Laws of Physics – with Jerome Gauntlett

Black holes are structures in the fabric of space and time itself, and they’re amongst the most extraordinary objects that we know that exists in the universe. Despite the mathematical complexity in describing black holes, and the myriad ways in which black holes can form in the universe, we also know that they possess a […]

[♪ INTRO] Sending a spacecraft to explore far-off places in the solar system is cool. But you know what’s even cooler? Sending spacecraft to explore outside the solar system. It’s new terrain for human-made objects, and we’ve only done it twice. But in a series of papers published this week in the journal Nature Astronomy, […]
